Water is such a great thing. I am sooooo not a water drinker but I have realized that my skin is not so dry and (I know this sounds funny) when I get in all of my water for the day, I feel lighter and sleep so much better.

The Importance of Regular Water Consumption

Water is the most valuable and necessary 'nutrient' for the proper operation of the human body. It's very important to drink enough water daily as regular water consumption is the only way that your body can eliminate concentrated toxins from your cells. Whether cleansing or not, a deficiency of water, dehydration, can have deleterious effects on your body, possibly leading to failing health and in extreme circumstances death. Few of us are close to that stage of water loss, but if you are experiencing heartburn, rheumatoid pain, back pain, heart or angina pain, headaches, or leg pain from walking, you may be suffering from chronic dehydration.

Through many studies it has been shown that joint movement is greatly facilitated by water. The cartilage lining in your joints need fluid to create a cushion between your bones. Without sufficient water, an inflammatory process can develop to compensate for the lack of water. It may appear that there is an infection or arthritis in your joints, when in reality, there is only dehydration. This occurs frequently in elderly persons as many people of increasing years drink very little water daily due to other concerns such as bloating, water retention, and kidney problems.

Cutting back on water consumption is the wrong course of action for these problems as other more serious complications can result from a lack of water consumption. The correct course of action would be to drink an appropriate amount of fluids a day (discussed further later in this article) and to treat the causes of the specific ailment in an appropriate way.

There are many other helpful effects on the body that occur when adequate water is consumed daily. Present in your stomach and duodenum (the first portion of your small intestines) lies a mucous barrier that prevents acid penetration and damage to your gastrointestinal lining. A well-hydrated mucous barrier will retain bicarbonate and neutralize acid as it tries to pass through the mucous. Drinking proper amounts of water will provide a much better acid barrier to the mucosa than any medication on the market.

Water consumption is very important for your overall metabolic health. If your double-layer cell membranes lack sufficient water, enzyme movement in and out of your cells will be obstructed. Enzymes are necessary to activate all the body's cell functions, and anything that interferes with enzyme movement will have a negative effect on all your body's systems.

Hypertension or high blood pressure can be helped by optimal water consumption. When you have inadequate volume in your blood stream, the vessels selectively decrease in diameter. The vascular system adapts to volume loss by selectively closing the blood vessel lumen. One major cause of blood volume loss is insufficient body water. In chronic dehydration water is lost from the inside of some cells, from the water volume held outside the cells, and from water held in the blood vessels. The compensatory closing of the lumen to compensate for water loss causes the rise in tension recognized as hypertension.

What's the Appropriate Level of Water Consumption?

A good rule to follow is to drink half your weight in 'ounces' of water every day. So, if you weigh 160 pounds, you would benefit by drinking 80 ounces of water each day.

Examples: 200lbs=100 ounces of water daily
100 lbs=50 ounces of water daily

Drinking pure water allows your body to flush out toxins without having to mobilize and put stress on your digestive system. Adequate water consumption is one of the single most important tasks we must practice daily in order to live a long and healthy life.

Team Bee is: Marilee, Garber (Kim Q), Shannon, Penny and myself.

Rules: Log you water intake in ounces with a daily totalsummary. Each day start another daily total count. I will be keeping track so on Monday the winner will be announced.

Ounces In:
Ounces Total for day:

Coffee, Tea, soda, crystal light or any additives do not count.

Reminder: Water intake should be of a healthy amount. The rule of thumb is that a person should drink 1/2 of the body weight or a minimum of 64 oz a day. We definently do not want to experience water toxicity, so monitor you ounces! Also, if you work out you should drink an additional 8 oz for every 20 min during the workout.

Go team Bee and have some fun!!
